Camps at Compass Arts

Compass Arts Rompatom Gina SamardgeRompatom Music Camp
For 8-14 year olds
Taught by Gina Samardge

Students will be immersed in a variety of challenging instrumental and vocal material, learning about improvisation, theory, and composition, and creating a vibrant performance that will be shared that Friday at the end of the camp. A focus on rhythmic work and ensemble playing, combined with movement and theatrical elements, brings a deeper understanding to musicianship and music making that is enthralling for this age.

Students who play other instruments (uke, piano, violin, guitar, etc) are welcome to bring them to the camp and we will incorporate them into the performance. Keyboard on site.

For 8-14 year olds
Taught by Eric Saiet and Gina Samardge

Join us for a super fun filled week of theater! Led by Eric Saiet and Gina Samardge, this camp will have the students up on their feet playing theater and improv games, exploring character work, skit writing, and creating original material, as well as looking at scenes from existing plays. They will also get experience on percussion instruments (xylophones, drums and small percussion) as a tool for underscoring their writing or creating a song for a skit.

Come experience all of the benefits that theater has to offer: meeting lifelong new friends, team building exercises, research, working with props and costumes, exploring movement and percussion instruments as ways to help bring writing to life, and other fun activities!
